In the News...

Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion will star in nine TV ads to promote the Bronx (and indirectly his 2009 mayoral campaign), according to the Observer.

Today's New York Times has a feature by Manny Fernandez about Johnny Five, a homeless man living beneath an abandoned train station in Highbridge. It's a fascinating look at his failed transition from the streets to an apartment provided by local community based organizations.

In another Highbridge story, the Metro reported Friday that there's talk of reopening the High Bridge so people don't have to climb across it illegally any more to get to the Manhattan side of High Bridge Park.

Congressman Joseph Crowley weighed in on congestion pricing.

And this week's City Limits features a story on the construction jobs that were promised in connection with the Croton Filtration Plant, now that the first pre-apprenticeship program is underway. The Norwood News ran a story on this in December.
